While watching Yvonne’s performance on 24, I realized that Yvonne is the best actress, and it’s not even close. We often hear the names of Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek, we often associate these actresses with their on screen beauty, but for some of the actresses that’s where it ends.
Yvonne’s work speaks for itself, she has mastered accents and expressions, some of her emotional scenes are enough to break even the hardcore of males down. I can’t sit through some of her work on Chuck without holding back tears, for example, Chuck vs Phase Three is an episode that showcases her emotion expressions at its best.
First, when Morgan told her about Chuck’s proposal plan, she delivers tears and flabbergast eyes when hearing she only loved Chuck because of the supercomputer in his head. After finding out where Chuck was being held she becomes rampage Sarah. Anger and desperation emotions are on displayed. Great acting is one thing but these scenes illustrate a gift. Her expressions are natural and flawless. Especially when trying to wake Chuck. She allows the character to become alive and the scene becomes that more powerful. As the viewer, you can feel the pain and anguish, follow by relief and happiness to have Chuck back in her life.
Can any actress pull it off? Sure, but can they do it all the time. Sarah Walker portrayal is one thing, but what happens when she takes the roll as Dexter’s Hannah McKay? She still can mesmerize you with her beauty and delivery. Yvonne’s role was a poisonous serial killer, thus, transformed from Agent Walker to Hannah with ease, and we soon see how deadly she can be. She is supposed to be a woman you despise when she tried to kill Jennifer Carpenter’s Debbie Morgan, but since we already know her as Sarah Walker it was hard to boo her. Nonetheless, her acting was great. She made you feel sorry for her situation follow by wanted to see if Dexter can killer her, but even a serial killer like Dexter falls for the trap. Her eyes and expressions does it again.
Yvonne has hit the big screen two times in I, Frankenstein and The Guilt Trip, but she had more of a significant role in I, Frankenstein, and playing the role as Dr. Terra Wade, a scientist who was able to reproduce Victor Frankenstein’s work. While the overall acting was terrible, Yvonne was still able to give a top notch performance. She can’t always carry a cast, and the fact is seeing her on any kind of screen makes this Chuck fan very happy.
On Twitter, I have often posted the comment, she is a walking fairy tale and I would like to explain my reason here. The princesses in fairy tales seems to be beautiful and kind. They stretch themselves out for the greater good and while she does not intend to make people smile. She does not ask for anything in return, she greets everyone with a smile and graciousness. Yvonne does this and more.
She is an actress and celebrity but she does not let it get to her head. She is humble much like the princesses in fairy tales, and it separates her from the rest. She has done a lot of comic con panels and never turns down fans when taking pictures with them, which is refreshing from what usually happens in Hollywood. This is why she is a walking fairy tale. This is why Chuck fans embrace her and will back her in anything she does. Yvonne, if you ever read this, you are appreciated beyond words and while we may be a small fan base. We will support you in everything you do because we love your performances.
Whatever Yvonne decides to do in the future, whether it be on the big screen or on television we know she will give her best and that’s all anyone can ask. She is the best because of her personality and her commitment in evolving into the gem that Chuck and Dexter fans already know and now 24 fans will learn.
She is the best actress because she cares about others and doesn’t ask for anything in return. She does not get into trouble like a Lindsay Lohan or Kim Kardashian. She is the best because she is one of us.
